  • Hi Guys!

    This time I wanted to make a lesson that used some basic 3 note sequences and move them up the neck laterally. This is a great way of breaking out of your pentatonic and minor/major box positions. If you can follow a scale up or down the neck at will then you give yourself more opportunities to string cool licks together without being tied to certain finger positions associated with box shapes. In other words, it's like freeing yourself.

    At the same time, you're giving yourself an intense left and right hand workout.. and not only that, but it will also work on your hand synchronisation!
    How cool is that?

    I was inspired by some of Vinnie Moore's exercises and, because I enjoy playing them so much myself, I wanted to put something together for you lot here at GMC so you can play along to the backing track and hopefully start submitting your own videos of it to REC.

    Remember guys, the only opponent is within. So it's time to ditch those excuses about not being able to use your pinky or not having any finger independence. Don't stop yourself from realising your potential as a guitarist! Get to work!
